It's not about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.

The evil of cars

If you want the cars off the roads, you have to build the public transportation infrastructure -- like in Tokyo or Paris or even NYC. The issue of using cars or not using cars is not a morality issue. It is the result of a short term desire by the large auto manufacturers in the 1930's and 1940's. Instead of building and improving the train networks, we sold cars and built interstates, and also ripped up a lot of train tracks on the West Coast. This was a social policy decision that is now biting us badly. if we need a new policy, blaming and shaming people who drive cars and getting excited about making places "car-free" doesn't address the problem at all.

In San francisco we get bus lane improvements to shave maybe 5 minutes of transit time and tunnels from a basketball stadium to a tourist location that eats up a billion dollars and still is not completed. Cosmetic improvements. And then we get Republicans who filibuster everything and back-stabbing Democrats who whine about deficits or some manufactured issue their corporate backers want them to say. Squabbling while our democracy whittles away and the Earth's eco-system is fraying at the ends.

Thought of the day.

We allow huge aggregations of wealth that makes superfluous investments like dead-end branches on the tree of economic evolution, instead of long-term, long-range economic investments. And instead, what are we discussing, what are we arguing about, what "vague mumbo jumbo that leaves you more confused" ?

Critical Race Theory and "Collective guilt" BS.

No teacher is teaching children to feel guilty about the color of their skin. This is nothing but a ruse used to divide and distract the lower classes so that the aristocracy can rule and dismantle the government of the people into a form that suits their own interests.

They confuse us with false boundary lines

There is no left or right in politics. There are those who benefit from the authoritarian aristocratic tendency of societies, and everyone else. Some of the "everyone else" are manipulated by their ignorance and bias to not understand this, or they are just shills.

The voicemails left for Mike Fanone

Deranged ? Delusional ? Belligerent? Insane ?

The DC capitol police officer Michael Fanone received a voicemail.

I wish they would have killed all you scumbags because you people are scum. Too bad they didn't beat the fuck out of you even more.

Deranged ? Delusional ? Belligerent? Insane ?

Why are the current city garbage cans a problem ???

The city of San Francisco has a garbage can problem and is currently deciding on another roll-out of public garbage cans. The last round of city garbage cans occurred in the middle of the 1990's. The news media will likely implicate the city because the prototypes are $20,000 each, but the problem isn't a simple trope about high cost city infrastructure.

Here's a view from local KPIX CBS news:

As you can see from the above pictures, the current garbage cans are regularly invaded by homeless who pull out all the garbage and throw it on the street. To attempt a solution for this problem, the city attempted a contract with special wifi-connected garbage cans in the districts that are largely affected by the garbage issues (like the Tenderloin and SOMA) called "Bigbelly" that are service/subscription based ( $1,800 per year for each wifi-enabled garbage can).

But ... The Bigbelly cans are being removed from the Castro district

[SOURCE: hoodline | 5 May 2020]

In fact, you should go do a google search on "sf city trash bigbelly" and read about the brief history of bigbelly wifi-connected garbage cans in the city of San Francisco.

So now the city is looking into buying cans that address the issue of garbage, wifi-connection, and manageable integration with the city waste/garbage collection system. The initial prototypes are expensive, but the goal is to choose the cans and then mass produce them, which city officials have said they expect to be less than $5000 per can.

This ain't over yet

Florida is having another wave

The number of new cases statewide -- 23,697 -- was nearly double that of the previous week. That’s the highest number of cases in one week since mid-May when the rate was dropping off the astronomical peaks hit in January. The 7.8% positivity rate of coronavirus tests in the week ending July 8 was also up significantly...

Jacksonville had 2,127 new cases in seven days and reported a 15.7% positivity rate on testing. Duval County has not seen more than 2,000 new COVID-19 in one week since February.

[SOURCE: Steve Patrick, Joy Purdy | | 10 July 2021]

The variant is starting a small wave out here in San Francisco too. The positivity rate was below 1% since March 2021. Today, 15 July 2021, the positivity rate just crosssed 2%.

[SOURCE: san francisco department of public health ]

The positivity rate is a proxy indicator on how the disease is spreading. The access of tests and the positive rate of those who seek access of tests are BOTH good indications of the spread -- since people who are sick or have been related to those who get sick are ALSO highly likely to be motivated to seek tests. When people are concerned about cost or are asymptomatic, that decreases the numbers of those who seek tests, however the increase in positivity of those who do seek tests is a correlative assessment, a proxy for how many cases are going undetected. 5% is the threshold that experts see for the sign of a need to do more testing. Having a track and trace system of testing in place eliminates this blind spot. Which is why an increase in the percentage of positive results out of those tested can be an indication of the increase in the viral spread.

In San Francisco, the seven day average of daily positive cases was between 11 and 14 from 1 June 2021 until 26 June 2021. The state and city loosened restrictions on 15 June 2021. On 27 June 2021, the 7 day average of daily positive cases became 15. Since then the average has been going up -- 20, 27, 34, 35, 42. We have high rates of vaccination and people who respect the need to wear masks, but ...

Fingers crossed.
